Default Briggs Model Y Spark Plug Wire

Iíve got a Briggs model Y that I just got to fire this afternoon but noticed shortly thereafter that the spark plug wire is nearly severed in half. Anyone know where to get a new wire or a high quality reproduction?

Yeah, the 7mm copper core wire does the trick. Strip off about a half inch on the end that will be on the coil. Take some solder and tin that end. Here's why- Trying to solder the wire onto the terminal will cause damage to the coil windings. Thread your tinned end through the coil terminal and bend it around the terminal. I put a small amount of silicone sealer over that connection to prevent flash over.
